Indian team was the best in Asiad: Sandeep Singh

New Delhi, Nov 28 (PTI) Disappointed with the bronze medal finish at the Asian Games, ace drag flicker Sandeep Singh today said that the Indian hockey team was the best in the quadrennial event but lack of video referral system deprived the team of a well-deserved victory against Malaysia in the semifinal.

India had defeated arch-rivals Pakistan in the league phase and defending champion Korea in the bronze medal play-off.

The Rajpal Singh-led team lost to Malaysia through Muhammad Amin Rahim's golden goal in the semis despite leading 3-2 till the 67th minute. Amin had earlier converted a penalty corner to equalise.

The former captain, who scored the highest number of goals (11) in the tournament, echoed the sentiments of chief coach Jose Brasa in condemning the standard of umpiring.

Luck was on my side at Asiad, says Vijender

New Delhi, Nov 29 (PTI) Handicapped by a dislocated thumb and up against a two-time world champion, Indian boxer Vijender Singh today said he still managed to pull off the Asian Games gold medal as "luck was back" on his side a month after deserting him at the Commonwealth Games.

World number one Vijender blanked Uzbekistan's two-time world champion Abbos Atoev in the Asian Games final despite dislocating his thumb in the opening three minutes of the bout.

Recalling the tense moments, the 25-year-old, whose hand is currently heavily bandaged, said a power-packed left hook led to the dislocation and leaving him to fight practically with one hand.

"My hand was in a terrible state even before the Asian Games but it completely broke at the worst possible time.

It was in the closing stages of the first round.
